pulseaudio just about ready to release . Most of the patches Slackware has been using are part of the build now.
I see many of the stuff that builds with meson has slowed things down do to huge change in build scripts.
Weathers nice time to enjoy life.
Beer is on sale.

Also, lest we forget, the new release of GRUB should be coming out in a few days. Maybe some testing has been going on there as well.

Leave this guy to fish alone! It's a well deserved fishing session after years of daily updates.

BTW, they have this on Minnesota!

Marking this as solved since change.log tells me that there have been no updates that I've missed.

Thanks

Agree with you on all sentences. Congratulate Pat and all valuable contributors to immortal Linux distribution.

And a thought on ages back first July 2016 cross my mind too.

Slackware is not for those who check new versions on a daily basis. For those there is Arch. You are using the wrong tools, comrade.

Are you talking about slackware-current ?

Slackware-current is probably one of the most up-to-date linux distributions
